I have enjoyed her other books but this one seemed like she had missed her publishing deadline and just turned in the rough draft missing the final 4 chapters. I liked the early character development but during the second half of the book the only insight about the characters seemed to be a listing of the "brands" of their furniture and clothing.
I felt cheated and the ending was unsatisfying. I would not recommend this book.
I would consider a hard copy versus audio for future books by this author.
Well, yes. I liked the conversational feel but the pacing was awkward and it sounded unrehearsed. The worse part is that is sounds like the reader was sitting in their bathroom reading from notes. Would benefit from a more professional reading of the material.
Might have to get a hard copy to get a real benefit from this material. A little disappointed in the audio book product.
The reader uses their voice to help add excitement and tension to the story. The story could be in any large city with very old buildings with mysterious doors and shadowed pasts.
I enjoyed the concept of investigating a creaky old building to discover it's mysteries. And the feeling that some of the tenants became invested in each other helped to make the reader interested in what they might discover on their hunt for clues.
He can make the phone book sound exciting, especially while running through the Fs and Gs. The inflections and accents help you tell who is speaking and helps paint the picture.
I really enjoyed this book until the last 22 minutes or so. The book was well paced until just before the end and suddenly it seemed rushed and slightly unfinished. The depth of detail became lost in the hurry to wind everything up in the last chapter.
